Once again, it's time for a new BONTE game called 'A Bark In The Dark'. It's a point 'n'click adventure starting in a room, but there's more to it than a regular escape the room game...Eeeeek. I can't wait. I'm going to be "busy" for a while, do not disturb me... [subbed & created by Bart].
Bart's games so it was great to see that the first thing in my in-box this morning was the news that he has a new game "A Bark In The Dark" released for the Casual Gameplay Flash Game Design Competition. I need to get off and start playing so here's what Bart has to say about "A Bark In The Dark":
RomZom is a point'n'click game with some zombies and severed limbs thrown in for good measure (just in case you can't detect my subtle subtext what I'm saying is it's not one for the kids or the squeamish). Beyond that we're on the familiar, and hallowed, turf of trying to "escape the room". There's even a video walkthrough if you get stuck [subbed & created by Shi Daniels]. UPDATE: If the original game link isn't working for you when you try to play try this mirror site instead.
Orio's Riddle gives url changing puzzle fans another chance to exercise their grey matter, search source code, google and generally tear their hair out [subbed by dosra, Willow & Phil].
Temple Of Zoom is a level based platform game that contains loads of camera references (not surprising as it's promoting Panasonic Cameras), and uses some simple graphics and sounds. So on paper it doesn't sound too exciting, however start to play and it's quite endearing and you'll want to do "just one more level". You can even get some money off a camera (I think this is UK only though) if you complete ten levels [subbed by avs5221].
Qwizard Series has been on a break for a while now, but it's returned with Qwizard 6, possibly the hardest set of 100 levels of url changing puzzling in this series. It's time to dust off your best brain, and get googling [subbed and created by greg & lola].
Ast Escape for a while now, but I was convinced that the link didn't work properly. However, there's just a huge pause whilst it's loading, and if you have patience the thing eventually does start working. Anyway, once it actually is loaded you find yourself locked in a recording studio, and despite the language barrier, I think it's safe to assume the goal is to point'n'click our way out of the room [subbed by carm & winniethepooh].
Monster Basement before the monster returns? Muwhahaha... you better get those point'n'click skills working to get you out of there. BTW - maybe I'm just being picky here, but "vampire" flies? Is there such a thing as a non-vampire fly? [subbed by Sanara, Lydia, Mystery & winniethepooh].
Rinako Room has all of the point'n'click essentials: The word "Room" in the game title - check, a locked door - check, a computer on a desk - check, and a waste-paper basket hiding a clue - check. If only it was in totally undecipherable Japanese it would have it all... oh... it is... [subbed by winniethepooh, Mystery, Sanara & Lydia].
Polleke's Garden it's now time to escape Polleke's Room [subbed by im4noles2, EscapePortal & franki1368].
Bloxorz is a nicely executed 3D puzzle game that is more than somewhat addicting, and with 33 progressively more difficult levels to complete be prepared for it to suck up quite a bit of your time. The idea of the game is to flip your little block (using the cursor keys) around the 3D floating platform, being careful not to fall off, to ultimately slot the block in the hole at the end of the course. It seems tricky to master to begin with, however you soon get used to it, but then they throw in some switches, bridges and some weak points that fall away if you pass over them in the wrong way to liven things back up again. Just one note of caution - the game is presented in an isometric(ish) layout, and does use the cursor keys for movement, a combination which I know from past experience that a lot of you hate - I didn't find this a problem at all in this game, but you have been warned [subbed by Masquerade, winniethepooh & AldoPlepi].
It Finds It, only released a couple of days ago, returns with yet more observe'n'clickery in the cunningly titled "It Finds It 2". Once again you have to find, and click on, the object that slowly appears in the pictures that you see, and once again I'm already stuck on level two, but then again I really am overdue a visit to the opticians [subbed & created by selfdefiant].
